On Thursday Mr. Dignam’s 5th class did an interview with Seán Doherty who is a famous Irish composer. he told us all about how he writes his music, where he gets his ideas and how we could start writing our own music. We had a lot of fun!
Third and fourth class have a new challenge called ‘Road to the Aviva’. The Aviva Stadium is 21km from St. Kilian’s Senior National School. This is almost the same distance as a half marathon. To improve children’s fitness and well-being we have decided to complete a half marathon over the next 40 school days. The children will complete 500 meters a day. The emphasis will be on improving overall fitness and health. The students have been advised to bring in old runners everyday. There will be a strong likelihood that these runners will get wet as the weather changes. The children will be encouraged to walk, jog or run the distance each day depending on their fitness level.
